Yoga Philosophy regards life as a meaningful interconnected whole. It teaches us how to give value to each part of our existence and shows us how our outer material life can support our inner life. It makes us aware that the highest spiritual goal transforms our life into a sacred journey, makes our life worth living and gives it a deep and purposeful meaning.
The classical teachings of yoga give us a wonderful message of hope and encouragement and inspire us to rise beyond the habitual states of eating, drinking, sleeping and one day dying. They help us to find the centre within where we are not touched by the stresses and strains that challenge us in our lives.
‘Life is a voyage in the infinite ocean of time, where scenes are perpetually changing. We are here as passing pilgrims. Our destination is Unity. The great central aim in life is the coming into a conscious realisation of Oneness. Make life a perpetual joy. Life is your greatest gift. Take hold of each day as if it were the last and use every second profitably. Spiritual life gives meaning to human life and imparts glory to it.’ Swami Sivananda
